The following thread is an Unsolicited Proposal (to the Staff as well as the verified and yet to be verified Subject Matter Experts) for a sticky
thread to be created within this Forum. The intent of this proposed sticky thread is to provide a resource to the ATS community to request an expert
on any given subject matter within a thread.
Currently, and according to the ATS Home Page the forums that are listed as
"MYSTERIOUS Subject Matter Forums"
...are: Conspiracies in Religions - Ancient & Lost Civilizations - 2012 - Origins and Creationism - Paranormal Studies - Predictions & Prophecies -
Cryptozoology - Philosophy and Metaphysics
However, I believe this resource should be available for any forum as many of the other forums have their share of "Subject Matter Experts" per
The inspiration for this proposal was due to seeing the first few posts of a thread about a Russian Spiral similar to the Norway one. The Youtube
Video of the Russian News Broadcast describing the event and interviewing the witnesses was ...well...in Russian. The contributor of the video then
states something along the lines of "we need someone that speaks Russian...yup". Mind you I stopped reading the thread from there, perhaps it was
translated. Be that as it may....
I thought, what if there were a thread one could post a request for a Russian speaking member to visit "such & such Spiral" thread and then say "I
respectfully request a Russian speaking member to translate the video in this post Thank you in advance. Have a pleasent day." People with "other
than ordinary" skills/knowledge/experience/language/etc could now easily have a thread to see if they could offer their assistance to anyone.
In Closing, this would in fact require participation from members on both sides of the fence (as it is). First "the experts", would need to
periodically peruse this thread of course. Second, members would have to post requests in the thread to be perused. None the less, I feel it could be
a very useful tool on ATS. All that's required is to provide the proper marketing of said thread and the participation of said thread by the members
of ATS. Oh, and of course the actual authoring of said thread itself.
Thank you for your consideration and time.
